Patched ceiling in the garage

1 Reply

Hi everyone! I am in the process of purchasing a SFR in Texas. I found that one part of the ceiling is patched in the garage, but the seller says they have no idea what it is because it was there when they bought the house.

Can anyone has idea what it might be? Or is there any way we can find out what's going on underneath?

Look at what is above it.  The patched damage was likely caused by a kitchen leak, for example.  I wouldn't worry about it if it looks like a normal patch and doesn't show any evidence of an active leak.
